Students can file or make changes to their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2024-2025 school year at studentaid.gov.

All students in need of financial assistance are encouraged to complete the FAFSA. Federal Student Aid is the largest provider of financial aid for college students in the United States. Even though a student may not qualify for grants or work-study, all students are considered for the Federal Direct Loan (no co-signer required). Filing the FAFSA does not commit students to taking a loan, but it does allow for more options.

The 2024-2025 FAFSA requires students to report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. For the 2024-2025 FAFSA students will use their 2022 tax information. Details about the FAFSA can be found online at studentaid.gov.

Several Missouri organizations will host free in-person and virtual FAFSA assistance drop-in sessions this summer to help students complete or correct their FAFSA. The Missouri College and Career Attainment Network will host virtual sessions from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday evenings through July 31. They will also host in-person sessions in the Kansas City metro area from 5-7 p.m. Monday evenings from June 3-July 31.

The Missouri College Advising Corps College Connections Center will host virtual sessions from 1-4 p.m. Wednesday afternoons through Aug. 7. They will also host in-person sessions from 1-4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at various locations throughout June and July. A list of walk-in locations can be found here. A list of additional virtual and in-person FAFSA support resources offered this summer can also be found here.
